A very contentious turf route with so much talent it could have a name attached to it as most have had turf stakes experience, albeit with varying degrees of success.
The filly wee found most interesting because of her upside as a soon to be four year old, Beechnut Trophy (9-2).
Saffie Joseph Jr, trained filly had a tough trip at a demanding distance over a demanding and quirky Kentucky Downs now returns to a course over which she broke maiden, won her “other than” before missing by a neck in an overnight stakes with a late rally after being forced to stead some.
Check out Gulfstream Park, APR 2, Race 11 and determine whether you think she was best on the day.
But her best friend might be that in addition to some class relief, she’s back on Lasix. With the diuretic, she’s 1-for-1. An inside post won’t hurt the cause and neither will Tyler’s presence.
We’re taking Beechnut Trophy to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Canadian ship-ins class dropper Sweet Enough (6-1) and fast-figures Rosebud’s Hope (7-2)
